1956 F250 with Lincoln engine
I have a 1956 F250 that has a Y block Lincoln engine installed. I'm trying to find out exactly which one it is and have uncovered 2 sets of numbers:

On the drivers side of the block a couple of numbers 64J:1

On the passenger sideI got ECU601(7?) 5A. Hard to make out the 1 or 7 and I think the last one is A.

Any help on this appreciated.

Nice, 368 cubes if I read Rocketman55's link correctly. 285 hp for the 56, 300 for the 57. You need to bring that engine to life.

I would love to do that but I don't think it's in the cards. I think I'm going to be selling this jewel.
Have to talk to the wife...

Thanks for that info. I had seen the lincoln page before but I was confused. The one you sent seems to point to the 368 which would be really sweet.
